Okay it is a bit early for Christmas talk, but it is hard not to think about it with the retailers pushing the “official shopping day” earlier and earlier each year. In Houston, there are already wreaths and lights up at the major shopping centers. Anyway, I saw a great post over at Luxury Housing Trends about outdoor Christmas lights that are solar powered. They are wonderful icicle lights that are available at Target for $40. My guess is that these will sell out early since so many of us our focused on our energy bills.
